On Eagle's Wings

On Eagle's Wings
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:29-31

Patios and Needs

When you think the word patio, what picture comes to mind?
A place to relax outdoors, cool, shade from the heat.

Our son Jason built a fantastic cover for their patio
to shade the kids from the heat. He also built a really terrific
ladder to the kids' fort/playhouse.

Amy, our daughter-in-law
has worked hard to add to the beauty of both with
different flowers and plants and decorations.
Great job, guys! :-)
Last night I mentioned that the only thing
the playhouse needed were wind chimes.
Amy agreed, but Jason nixed that.
(I knew his Dad would agree with him).
Jason mentioned that the only thing
the patio needed was a flat screen TV!

Amy and I both nixed that!
(as if I had any say in that discussion)
But, isn't it funny the differences in
what men and women
think are needed?
Kate and Jack don't know anything about wind chimes,
and I really don't think they care about the flat screen TV
(yet). ;-)
But what they DO know is
it's fun outside,
fun time climbing the ladder
and sliding down the slide.

And Jack REALLY likes
the water table on the patio.

Now that's refreshment!!
And that is what is needed!

Hmmmmm. That sounds a lot like us.
Kate and Jack's Daddy and Mommy have provided
a place for them to play,
and rest, and be refreshed.
Our Father has provided everything we need too.
"Your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him!"
Matthew 6:8 NLT

The extra blessings????
We call them God-kisses.

And Grandpa kisses too.
